60000 Btu Garage Heater

How many Btu you need depends on variables such as the garage size, your climate zone and the temperature you want to work in. A basic rule of thumb for forced-air heaters is 45,000 Btu to heat a two- to 2-1/2 car garage, and 60,000 for a three-car garage. The makers of low-intensity infrared tube heaters say that 30,000 Btu can heat a two to 2-1/2 car garage, and suggest 50,000 for a three-car garage. Check with a local heating pro or the heater manufacturer for a specific recommendation to fit your needs.

This review is for our Modine Hot Dawg heater, Model HD-60 (60,000 btu) burning natural gas. After some research, including a heat-loss analysis to determine appropriate sizing, we found the best price from QC Supply. Fast standard shipping via FedEx Ground was included in the price. The unit came fully assembled and ready to go to work right out of the box. Overall design, workmanship, fit and finish is excellent. We’re heating a new construction 2 1/2 car garage and workshop area (28′ x 28′) with 11′ ceiling and a heated living space above here in the chilly hills of Western New England. It was below freezing yesterday with the wind gusting over 40 mph but my garage stayed warm and toasty with the heater cycling only a few times an hour. Straightforward installation and very quiet operation. Clear, concise instructions provided by Modine, downloadable from QC website if you want to plan ahead. To complete the installation you flip the mounting brackets over from the shipping position and provide your own threaded rod and other hardware to mount to ceiling. You must also provide vent pipe, gas piping and electrical to comply with local code. I’m an experienced DIY’er and my buddy is a top notch plumber who has installed many Hot Dawgs. It was out of the box, mounted to the ceiling, gas piped and vented in about two hours. 30 minutes more for electrical, only because I took the time to run EMT conduit for a nice, clean installation. It fired right up with no problems. There was only a slight “hot metal” smell for about 10 minutes during the initial run-in, as should be expected from any new heater. It is now running beautifully (and quietly) on a Honeywell programmable thermostat, although any standard basic thermostat will do. The HD-60 draws 2.5 amps so you can comfortably run either 12 or 14 ga wiring for line voltage. Thermostat wire is standard 2 conductor (only red & white terminals are used). All in all, this is a very nice heater doing exactly what it was designed to do. This was our first purchase from QC Supply and we will definitely buy again. They have a very easy us use website, excellent product selection, logical check-out process and great communications from purchase to delivery. Highly recommended.

I have had this 45,000 btu Hot Dawg installed for about a month now in my garage here in Brighton Colorado. I have to say this heater works extremely well in my fully insulated 600 sq ft garage. We have just had the coldest weather for the season, -17 degrees F at night sometimes, and this heater has performed flawlessly. I was in the garage one day and had the thermostat set for 70 degrees, it was 5 degrees outside, and the Hot Dawg had no problem getting it to 70, could have easily gone higher. When the heater is sized properly for you application you will love it.

Forced-air heater A forced-air heater is less expensive than an infrared heater, but it blows air (and dust), which makes it difficult to paint or stain projects. Infrared tube heater An infrared heater is quiet and doesn’t blow air, but it’s expensive and placement in the garage is critical.

Installation is markedly different too. Infrared heaters must be installed a minimum of 7 ft. above the floor, and must hang down a minimum of 4 in. from the ceiling (check the manufacturer’s instructions, as these measurements vary with the size of the heater). It’s critical that you make sure objects below are not too close. The 30,000 Btu unit shown requires a minimum 3-ft.distance from heater to objects below. Most infrared heaters are installed at the back of a garage pointed toward the garage door, then aimed downward at a 45-degree angle. They can also be installed between car bays if the garage door opener rail allows and you don’t have a tall vehicle.

I purchased this heater for a 3 1/2 car, short side attached garage 750 SF, 4″ Insulation on ceiling , and 1″ foam board on the walls with brick. 3 insulated doors. Normally it get down to 40 degrees in the winter. I did plenty of research and picked this unit. I am very happy. I keep 2 cars in the garge and lots of tools. I wanted a heater that would slowly rise the temp continously without cooking me when I am in front of the heater. I also didn’t want the on off cyles that causes you to be hot-cold-hot-cold untill it reaches the temp setting on the thermostat. This heater is perfect. Runs about an hour to rise the temp 20 degrees. than it’s off, and the temp holds for quite a while. The slow ris in temp also lets the car ‘s temp rise in sync with the air. The only problem is my wife is not happy that I’m now working in the garage in the winter with flip flops and a t-shirt on. I love it!

This is my 2nd Modine Hot Dawg heater in my garage. I believe the gas valve went bad in my other and since it was 10 yr.s old, I decided to replace the whole heater. While you should have 2 people to install this in the ceiling, it is small enough that I was able to accomplish it by myself. Since the gas line and vent system were already there, it was an easy install with just a quick trip to Menards for the right length gas pipe to go to the gas valve. The heater works great in my 3 stall garage in northern SD where winters can be quite cold. It takes about 20 min.s to heat it from 45 degrees (where I keep it for winter) up to about 55-60 degrees if I’m going to work out there. Very nice heater for the price.

Hung a 45,000 BTU in a small 2 car garage 400 square ft garage and heated garage to 72 degrees in less than 30 minutes. 12 degrees outside temp. This is a attached garage with only one exterior brick wall and an insulated 2car garage door. To maintain 70 degrees the unit ran for 10 minutes, rested for 22 minutes and repeated similar pattern making up about 20 minutes per hour of actual run time. Holding the room temp down to 65 would require it to run even less. Heat recovery time was remarkable when I experimented opening the garage door to let the frigid cold air in. Mine is 2 weeks old and I am more than pleased. Wife loves it. Makes going through the garage to let the dog out back nice at night pleasant.
